book bubble icon

WPS students are required to read either 3 books or a total of 800 pages. Burncoat High School students are to read 1 required book from the list below, dependent upon the grade they are entering into, and 2 books of their choice or books for their AP course. Along with this, students will create 3 projects of their choice.

Summer Reading is worth 10% of students' first quarter grade. Teachers will use the required Summer Reading book, listed below, as the basis for class lessons upon return to school. Students can read these books for free on-line using the links in the attachement or other links from WPS Summer Reading Page Free Books On Line, purchase a copy on their own, or pick up a copy at their local branch public library. All of this information will also be posted on the Worcester Public Schools Summer Reading Website. There are some books available at the BHS Library – first come first serve, see Mrs. Curran in the library. BHS Library copies will be collected back in September. You can apply for a Worcester Public Library Card as they have many copies available for you to borrow.

Advanced Placement Students, see list for required reading and coursework in addition to your Summer Reading English Requirement.
